1-cycle with bomb

Discovered by sva

By pulling out a bomb so that it explodes while Darkhammer is vulnerable after throwing the Ball & Chain, one can kill Darkhammer with 1 jump attack + quickspin after the bomb explodes. The position of the bomb is not important. What's important is making sure that the tail is targetable when the bomb goes off (yellow or red arrow above tail).

One hit fight

Darkhammer will die if its tail is hit by Mortal Draw once. Stand to the right of the tail and far enough away that Mortal Draw will not miss or clank on the armor.

Note that there are multiple ways to make Darkhammer throw the Ball & Chain, such as rolling around it and waiting, waiting and then rolling up to it, and clawshotting the ceiling past it.
